the economy. some of you may remember that bill clinton years on the economy were the best they had ever been in american history. it was the same old people that were taking advantage of circumstances that presented itself. that basically -- with a reduced electorate. no, i do not think they have a future. there is a congressman from georgia named paul brown who happens to be a doctor. he thinks that the big bang theory and evolution are works of the devil. you know, that is not the future. go to maryland, go to the maryland suburbs and look at the companies that are making billions of dollars doing genetic research. genetic research is all about evolution. >> are there additional questions? >> i just wanted to ask about when you saw effective black and latino alliances during the 2012 election? >> and the places where there were blacks and latinos living in proximity, all the states where there are both black and latino populations, in florida, virginia, less so in colorado. the black population is fairly small. nevada, definitely. the right in the country and especially the ultraconservati
and keeping the economy growing. all of it goes back to the looming fiscal cliff. $700 billion in tax hikes that will take place on january 1st unless there's a deal. >> he's going to reach out in a bipartisan way. . he's going to stick to his position on the revenues, but say we have to work together and i'm willing to do my share and lead my party. >> that 396 referring to the bush tax cuts. to make a deal, the president will need to work with congress, especially house republicans and they have been opposed to tax increases. we will hear from john baoehner too for the republican party. >> raising taxes on small business people is the wrong prescription. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming our tax code. >> i want to bring in ruth marcus, columnist at "the washington post" and perry bacon, an msnbc contributor. what's your sense of this? are we setting up for a feisty but doable deal? but is it also possible we're in for a battle of epic proportions? >> yes to both ques

economy, stronger, healthier economy means more americans working and more revenues, which is what the president is seeking. this framework can lead to common ground. i hope the president will respond today in that same spirit. as i said on wednesday, this is an opportunity for the president to lead. >> that was speaker of the house, john boehner, talking about the looming fiscal cliche. republicans are ready to sit down at the table with president obam a. but is he prepared to compromise? listen to when he had to say earlier today. >> i want to be clear. i am not wedded to every dedale tail of my plan. i am open to compromise. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 are not asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i am not going to do that. i want to point out, this was a central question during the election. it was debated over and over again. and on tuesday night, we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrat independents and a lot of r
to tackle the fiscal cliff, an economic mandate that could throw the economy into a tail spin unless democrats and republicans stop it all. house speaker john boehner wants a deal on spending cuts. president obama says that is not enough. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine cuts with revenue. >> joining us is jonathan strong. even if tax rates went up on the wealthiest households earning more than $250,000 a year the president, as the president demands, this would actually do almost nothing to reduce the deficit. i look at the joint tax committee report of conscious saying it would reduce the deficit only by 7%. that is 7% out of $1.1 trillion. in many ways is the president's solution more of an illusion? >> he is trying to sell this as a matter of fairness. he seems to be making progress politically on that front. you have a good point. another good question, there isn't any theory this would help the economy. the estimates are it would hurt this the economy. is now the right time for that? people are still hurting out there. >> gregg: the president is
't that be good for the economy? the president is open to compromise, but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck session of congress, 2011. so today he openly rejected the mitt romney, john boehner solution for tax reform. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring or closing loopholes that have not been identified. and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from now, where lo and behold, the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now, that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tab, boys. this is what president obama ran against in the presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was, trust me. the american public wanted specifics. and president obama continued to give specifics today, but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier

the economy. the campaign unfolded slowly as most persons did not know romney. and with all the high tech gizmos these days, it's difficult to get the attention of the folks. so i knew very early that the polling was insignificant and the debates would be the real test. as i said, these polls are interesting but they are not vital because of the debates, the three debates i think really going to the tale. >> i told you earlier this year when you said debates are going to be all important. i said the history shows they are not. >> bill: i'm so happy that you brought that up. can i just -- can i paraphrase barack obama? in the last debate? can i do that? >> of course. >> bill: can you say that a bit louder, brit? that's why i like hume, is he an honest man. as we all know the first debate was a major victory for governor romney. instantly made him competitive. but he did not exactly seize the day. his campaign played it conservative managing romney's appearances tightly scripting his media response. then in the third debate, the governor made a big mistake: now, the key question is, why did
drawing lines that they say they will not cross. the major hurdles, that threat to send the economy into a tailspin, that's coming up next. >>> plus a nascar race turning into a full-scale brawl. look at this. mayhem breaking out of the everybody going at it. we'll tell you what set it off. after this. ve lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. jenna: well come back, everyone. now let's return to the economy. the president and house speaker john boehner are suggesting they are willing to compromise to prevent our economy from going over that so-called fiscal cliff but both sides are digging in their heels whether or not to race tax rates for the wealthy. rich edson of the fox business network watching this all for us in washington. democrats got the white house, they got the senate. how are they beg
in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. the country that no longer is interested in conservative ideas. it is interested in handouts. >> >> laura: this frustration and dejection is understandable. i, like many conservatives, thought mitt romney would pull out a victory, i, like many republicans, am extremely disappointed. the autopsy of what went wrong is ongoing. there will be conflicting opinions on the cause of death for the romney campaign and all those senate races. i happen to think that mitt romney ran an overly cautious and defensive campaign which allowed the other side to define him. perhaps with the exception being that first debate. some establishment republic types say this requires the party, however, to be less conservative, to be more moderate. and it's no surprise that democrats agree. i find that depressing. conservatism won huge for the g.o.p. in 2010. and it beat back a union backed recall just recently in wisconsin. but in just two years, a short period of time it's become unmarkable? nice try to. para
with a deal like that, what does that do to an economy, which is moving along at 1 1/2 or 2 ?rs. nobody suggests you raise tax when is the economy's chugging along at 1 or 2%. what is the philosophy behind this, other than it's neo-marxist, let's go after the rich guys and hammer them. >> greta: pat, thank you. always nice to see you. >> coming up, republican and democratic lawmakers say they didn't see it coming. so many question, why the general petraeus resignation now? is it benghazi investigation, in any way related? our panel is here to talk about. that and then two former presidents and a former governor, now another bush family member is getting ready to run. which one is it? what is he running for? in two ♪ i am the ghost of cookies past. residue. so gross. well you didn't use new pam, so it looks like you're "stuck" with me.

connell laid down the line. they said we will not raise tax rates because this is harmful to the economy and i happen to agree with them i think if we go to tax rates at 45 percent to 50 percent that actually can cause a double dip recession. if that happens, we are not going do have more tax revenues we will have less because more will be unemployed and businesses make small are profit. the problem with revenues right now, we do have a revenue problem in washington, dc, but that is because the who is not growing. people are not paying much taxes because we do not have growth. you get the growth rate up you get an officer if revenue. >>neil: but it could be a democratic strategy for saying we doing all of this, and republicans will count themselves grateful if all they got was eliminating some deductions and putting a cap on write offs. as we have discussed on fox business network, which if you don't have you should demand, but that could be worst than a hike to 39.6 percent because depending on how much the adjust those deductions you could be well over 40 percent. >>guest: that is right. i a
cuts that would cause uncertainty and damage to the economy if they're not dealt with. extending those tax cuts for 98% of the american people would deal with more than half in dollar terms of the impact caused by the fiscal cliff. there are other challenges that we would need to address, including the sequester, but congress ought to the house out to pass those tax cuts right away. it would send a tremendous positive signal to the american people that in the wake of this election, we can at the very least come together and convert into law a bill that everyone aa agrees should become law. republicans and democrats alike, the president included. and we will then continue to work on those issues where we have broader disagreement, and that's why the president has invited leaders of congress here to the white house next week. that's why he will be meeting with business leaders and labor leaders and others to get their input and ideas about how to move forward. as he said he does have his own very specific plan that reduces the deficit by $4 trillion. that does
were people who were still dissatisfied with the economy, with obama's performance, but they were not sold on romney saying that was the undecided voter. well, a week later, those people were saying they were for romney, and undecided were people who used to be for obama, but they didn't like his performance in the debate so they were undecided. it's a myth of saying who was undecided. i think we're going to analyze it, analyze it as persuadable voters. that's who it is, is not in the core of either party to be persuaded. the way we, as reporters, analyze undecided voters is ridiculous. number four, independents are no longer the swing group. i mean, look, romney won independents. in ski battleground states, carried the independent vote and lost. indidn'ts, the way they -- independents, the way they define themselves now in the era of strong partisanship lean slightly republican. if they split even or if democrats win it, it's a very good year for democrats. it's the mirror image of moderates. mote rads lean democratic, but they are a key swing vote. to me, look at those who call
likely to postpone the spending cuts. i think that would be disastrous for the economy. and i think we're likely to let the tax cuts expire than come back in january and cut the taxes for at least 98% of americans. >> joining me now to map out a timeline, nbc white house correspondent mike viqueira who joins me from right there in the white house. so are you getting a sense of the schedule of these events? >> reporter: the schedule is pretty much up in the air. pretty remarkable that john yarmouth, house democrat from kentucky is basically saying let's go over the cliff because we're never going to come to an agreement. the trouble is that cliff if we go over it, the congress at budget office itself says over the next course of the year if those tax cuts kick in, more than $1 trillion in new added taxes to the american people. plus that sequester, that automatic cuts to defense and domestic spending about $1 trillion as well. the cbo says that will be 9.1% unemployment. gdp will slow by half a percentage point. it could be another recession. so where have we seen this movie before? the
of reasons, including it will be damaging to the economy. we learned recently that president obama in august of 2011 was kind of ready to do a nixon goes to china moment on entitlements and i think that's still on the table. have real entitlement reform. on taxes it's as bill clinton said. it's simple math. spending is at 24% of gdp. taxes are at about 15% of gdp right now. even the most conservative member of congress only proposes to bring spending down to say 20% or even 19% of gdp. you still have a 4% to 5% gap. that represents hundreds of billions of dollars that has to be made up. even if you assume growth could get back to 3%, that won't make up the gap. so taxes have to be on the table. there's no way to get around that if you want to actually deal with the fiscal crisis that we have. and what is most heartening to me is to learn today that the president is willing to take this show on the road, to go out into the states and make the case and actually reinforce that mandate he has and make republicans realize that those that want to work with him will be rewarded as people who are tr
, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president expressed confidence and urged action in reaching a deal to avoid the sudden increase of taxes and the imposition of spending cuts in january. but he reiterated time and again that he will not balance the budget on the backs of the middle class. saying that the election proved that the american people are behind him. >> when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach. and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate. and the majority of voters agreed with me. >> not just election results, though. new polling suggests the president has the upper hand going into the latest budget battle. in a new washington post/pew poll, 51% predict the president and republicans will not reach an agreement in time. 53% say republicans will bear more of the blame if no deal is struck. but at today's press conference it was another blame game that drew the president's ire, defending su
it comes to the economy, they think that's the way is to give their friends more money and hope they do well by you. you don't believe that they are not running for you. latinos come about with the immigration issue was about. you want to be part of the american dream they won't even pass the dream act. they are not running for you. does anyone have a question as to why those series of arguments and that series of consistency that ties and interweaves into a mirage that makes sense? why 21% of americans who think that caring about people like them as the most important feature in the national leader why they would select the person that was making that argument against the person ever to be running to them. as much as a character of romney and as much as that is a caricature of republicans, a character only works if they make sense in light of the person being caricatured. yes said, propagandize itself has to have a kernel of truth at its core so what republicans need to do is to get your hard look at ourselves. republicans need to ask if that is how a fifth of americans overwhelmingly
with house speaker john boehner. to begin talks on how to prevent the country's economy from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. both boehner and snart majority leader harry reid sounded conciliatory notes yesterday. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. >> boehner even opened the door to raising new revenues, code for taxes, though not through tax rates. he does put on some conditions. >> in order to garner republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up entitlement programs that are the primary drivers of our debt. >> so that is a shift in a negotiating position. now boehner suggested temporarily extending the current tax rates, pushing serious negotiations on a broader tax deal into 2013. while the president has hinted in the past that he's willing to include the issues of social security and medicare in the fiscal negotiations, what's not clear is whether the rest of his party is going to
